The tours are held in rain, snow or shine. We ask that you make sure to check the weather on the day of your tour and dress appropriately (bring an umbrella if necessary). On days of inclement weather, we will do our best to use indoor space as much as possible.  A Taste of Mulberry Street tour has the least outdoor time and may be a good option during inclement weather.

While we offer reduced tickets for children, our tours are mainly for a mature audience in that we taste ethnic cuisine and dive deeply into history and culture. Sometimes we find that children of a young age may become easily disengaged. Although we are a family-friendly tour company, please take care in knowing if your child will enjoy the experience prior to booking. We find that children 10 years old and older enjoy our Chinatown and Little Italy Food Fest tour. In regards to our A Taste of Mulberry Street tour we suggest ages 15 and up. If you have questions about bringing young children, please feel free to contact us.
